- Home from San Diego, with many a high-five distributed and received in turn. High tales to tell, in a write-up that I'm about halfway done with. In the meantime, a huge thanks to everyone who came out to the 'con and said "hi". It really was the best San Diego Comic-Con I've ever attended.
- The LA earthquake, today, reminded me that I need to get one of those li'l 3-day emergency kits put together. I always figure the National Guard will be distributing food/water within three days, so a 3-day kit will do, yes? Also: Need to get my house foundation bolted. Ah, to-do lists I've been putting off for years! How lovely of you to come rushing back to my mind during the earthquake itself!
- I'll write more about it in the next few days, but here's the first heads-up for people living in SoCal: We'll be having the big, open-invite book launch party for "Pugs: God's Little Weirdos" on the night of Sunday Aug. 10th at the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills! All are welcome -- so mark your calendar and come on out to join in the awesomeness!
- Also! Scott filmed a fun little capstone to our San Diego trip, which -- if you jump to the 2:30-minute mark -- includes tidbits from one of our panel talks, and a scene from my favorite SoCal burger joint, "In 'n Out".

If you and your California readers have the time the Geological Survey [usgs.gov] will very much appreciate it if you'd let them know how it felt at your location even if you didn't register it at all.

The french fries are called "Animal Style" It's a mix of the In N Out secret sauce, melted cheese and grilled diced onions- by far the best tasting french fries ever. They are part of the secret menu that In N Out has. Check their website http://www.innout.com for the complete menu.
I am so wanting In N Out now!

In 'n' Out isn't just a Socal chain any more - they've had branches in No. Cal. (where I live) for at least five years. They're expanding, but I hope they keep it slow, and keep the quality way, way up.
When is the next book going to be available? My pug-loving friend has been patiently waiting, but no longer believes anything I say about when it's due...
